Dwight / Stan better options. Stop the bleeding and score after stops. The Pacers were drilling shot after shot while Lakers went cold, and even when the Lakers started scoring, they could not stop the Pacers...so, the answer was to...put in more offense?

There was no point to bring in melo for offense because they just give lebron the ball and watch him Brick the 3 anyways. The rebounds and open 3s we gave up was not even worth it. We lost because levert got hot, either reaves or Stanley should’ve been guarding him


Exactly...so, why bring in Melo?

It's literally like if youre playing football, having trouble running the ball, its 4th and 1, team decides to go for it...by taking out the TE, going with just 5 O linemen, and running the ball up the gut against a 9 man front. It's like...huh?

That’s how the game was lost, bad decisions by vogel


Well, I got that Mad, we dont disagree...the question I posed is why bring in him. I listened to his post game interview and not a single media person asked. I'm curious if anyone else sees something I'm not here.

I had a feeling they would lose this game.

When you lose to a 15-29 team where none of their good players want to be there, no one should be safe.

Time to start dumping, selling, firing, whatever.

This clown roster, coaching staff, personnel decision makers, FO and ownership are all to blame. Blow it up. It’s time.

The win over Utah doesn’t mean jack (bleep) when you continue to lose to 15+ Games under .500 teams.

(bleep) EMBARRASSING.

I was gullible enough to think theyd win.

started it off being cheap ass owners having to choose between THT or Caruso...

then made the Russ trade which basically closed the window.

(bleep) is astounding that LBJ, AD and whoever else thought that Russ was gonna help with winning lol

Not many options, but Melo to close out the game knowing you need stops...


Anyone hear the rationale to bring him in?


No one seems to be asking him about it. Now they're talking about losses/disappointments/how to bounce back, etc.


Yup...I mean, its the pink elephant in the room, aside from sitting Russ. How come these media folks not asking such an obvi question? Unless they just figured after the Russ answer he gave of "I put guys out there I thought would win us the game" that he'd give the same response (which is not really one at all).

THT had the alley oop to Lebron and Monk and was shutting down Lavert. Vogel brings in Russ around 7:15 and Pacers go on a 30-19 run.

To be fair, this has little to do with Russ in the 4th, he barely played. It has more to do with Vogel playing melo for 30 minutes


Don’t bring back in the guy who has shot 4-16 is my point.

The 4th wasn’t the issue. Bringing him in to end the first half was.

He did made 1 3 to actually help us, I never said he played great, but blame a guy played like 2 minutes for this 4th quarter meltdown is little stretched.
Caris levert was hot and Vogel went like “good, like me see how hot he really is” he almost out scored the lakers at the end

Well, we were up by 4 at the end of the 3rd, so the 4th was kind of the issue.

I’m talking about subbing in Russ. I’m agreeing with you that he didn’t hurt us in the 4th.

He did come back in the second quarter with us up 13 and we ended up only being up 6 at half.

If Stanley played Melo's minutes and Dwight played 20mins, we easily win tonight... Levert would have never went off in the 4th also. This is no excuse for suppose to be a defensive guru coach.

(bleep) it. If he can’t handle the criticism, he is no better than Schroder.

Get rid of his ass. I hope it’s clear to the Lakers why guys like Melo and Russ never win.

The pacers are 3-17 on the road. Last road win was November 1st.

Lakers deserve all the ridicule.

Btw, hope everyone enjoyed Brogdon’s LGSRS after being out for weeks

I feel ashamed for backing him up when fans were criticizing his coaching, Vogel has checked out.. the game tonight proved it.. just announce the firing and get done with it.

I still think Vogel is upset about the extension situation. Not saying he’s trying to get fired but all season, he’s had wtf rotations and lineups.
